SYMPTOMS

When you modify the contact data filter to show only the contacts that are members of a certain marketing list in the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 client for Microsoft Office Outlook, the changes that you made for the marketing list do not synchronize to the user's Outlook contacts.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because the contact's versionnumber attribute is not updated when you change the contact data filter. Therefore, the synchronization process ignores the changes.
